GTT Chilliwack Meeting Agenda, Ideas and Gadgets to Help Organize our Homes, February 25, 2019

Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB)


Get Together with Technology (GTT) Chilliwack


You are invited to the next session of the Chilliwack GTT group, a group dedicated to the learning and sharing of information about assistive technology useful for those living with low vision, blindness or deaf-blindness.


Theme: Ideas and Gadgets to Help Organize our Homes

When: Monday February 25, 2019

Time: 1:30-3:30

Where: Chilliwack Public Library Main Branch

45860 First Avenue, Chilliwack


First Hour:

Sometimes those of us with low vision and blindness get frustrated with needing assistance from others to find things and keep things organized in our homes. This month we will be discussing some of the strategies we use to keep ourselves as organized and independent as possible. We will look at the technologies that are available and affordable as well as some low tech ideas that are easy and affordable.


Second Hour:

Following a break, we will open a Get Together with Technology (GTT) discussion about what devices we might be having trouble with, or those great new gadgets we’ve recently discovered that we might want to show-off.  Bring along those gadgets you want help with, and those you want to show others.

CCB Backgrounder:


The CCB was founded in 1944 by a coalition of blind war veterans, schools of the blind and local chapters to create a national self-governing organization. The CCB was incorporated by Letters Patent on May 10, 1950 and is a registered charity under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

The purpose of the CCB is to give people with vision loss a distinctive and unique perspective before governments.  CCB deals with the ongoing effects of vision loss by encouraging active living and rehabilitation through peer support and social and recreational activities.

CCB promotes measures to conserve sight, create a close relationship with the sighted community and provide employment opportunities.


The CCB recognizes that vision loss has no boundaries with respect to gender, income, ethnicity, culture, other disabilities or age.

The CCB understands in many instances vision loss is preventable and sometimes is symptomatic of other health issues.  For the 21st century, the CCB is committed to an integrated proactive health approach for early detection to improve the quality of life for all Canadians.

As the largest membership organization of the blind and partially sighted in Canada the CCB is the “Voice of the Blind™”.
